She attended a religious meeting in 1827, to which the scheduled preacher was unable to come, so she delivered the sermon herself. Afterwards, despite some opposition, she continued preaching around Massachusetts and other parts of New England. She preached less often after her marriage to Elder Junia S. Mowry in 1835, and she died six year later following complications from the birth of their second child" (Library Company).
